Probably one of the twins coolest experimental aircraft engine aircraft is the Diamond DA 42 Twinstar. The Twinstar is propelled by two diesel engines which burn Jet A or even conventional diesel fuel. Swarmed by offers, Elon Musk is currently assessing future choices. Sounds good, right? Think of the money you can save? The Diamond Twinstar was a huge hit at Oshkosh 2005 and for good reason, is elegant and sexy and performance is unmatched. The four new Tandem has retractable landing gear and cruise at 18,000 feet of 11.8 gallons per hour at 201 knots, ASA! Even up to 10,000 feet ASL will cruise at 180 knots TAS only 10.7 gallons per hour at 75 percent of energy. With fuel tanks long range to seventy-five percent of energy has a range of 1251 nautical miles. With standard fuel tanks can go 880 miles.
In fifty percent of energy that can fly for 19 hours and 2200 nautical miles? This would even make an excellent UAV for military patrols. This bird is sexy on the outside and inside the new Garmin glass panel ascetic makes a perfect package of speaking. Although it appears that a trainer twice, but a little racier not intended for training, however, the price is quite attractive when compared to a new day and modern high-performance single-engine aircraft and you get the safety of two engines. Since the aircraft is any compound, is lightweight and fast. The features are large and slow speed, low stall speed range is clearly an advantage. It is fun to fly and the visibility is excellent and full power at takeoff, boy oh boy up.
